You can change the location of the second image using position: relative and setting the left and top margins to the correct values so the images lie over each other (negative values are allowed). The z-index CSS attribute allows you to layer two elements over each other. The higher the z-index the more to the top the element is (i.e. a z-index of 10 will appear over an element with a z-index of 4).
So, if you had 2 images side by side on the page and wanted the right one over top of the left by 50px, the css would be

.firstImage {
   z-index: 50;
}
.secondImage {
   position: relative;
   margin-left: -50px;
   z-index: 100;
}

I would say you can't expect to do that and have it be compatible across all email clients. You shouldn't be using positioning, floats, etc. in email clients as many don't support them.

hericles didn't say to put it in an external css, you can add that in your head tag. and the z-index is the best way to do this.
